    Jarvis Clutch -- social spy

    Levine, Melvin D.

    Social interactions are often the most stressful aspect of adolescent life. In this book, the author teams up with fictitious eighth-grader Jarvis Clutch to offer insight and advice on the middle school social scene. Jarvis's spy notes provide a bird's eye view of the often traumatic social experiences that middle school students are bound to encounter. His wry perspective is alternated with commentary and wisdom from [the author], who provides an analysis of social situations from an expert's perspective and shares the terminology that students need to understand what it is that makes social interactions so difficult. Jarvis and [the author] cover such pertinent topics as peer pressure, how to handle aggression, finding your niche, popularity, shyness, and academic success, just to name a few. -http://www.epsbooks.com.
